Fairfield gives its students every opportunity possible, students just need to be active in taking advantage of them. Your student email will be bombarded with updates on campus activities and applications for positions in various clubs and organizations. Overall, I wish I got more involved freshman year. If you do, it will be to your benefit. Everyone gets super close! The people here are great. Making friends is easy. The party scene is exactly what you make of it. If you aren't into that, there's TONS to do at night. Academics are challenging but fair. It's college and I'm happy to be challenged. I love Fairfield. It wasn't my top choice but I would not trade it for the world. It's everything and more.
